then wastes it. that's the real problem. and it needs a real solution. we have to make sure washington is accountable for every tax dollar it spends. we have to make sure that your money is spent efficiently and effectively. unfortunately, the spending problem is getting worse not better. under president obama we have had four straight years of $1 trillion deficits. our national debt is now over $16 trillion. we're crushing today's small businesses and the next generations of americans, under a mountain of debt. we're selling their future. and our country's financial independence to china. many of our democrat colleagues just don't seem to get it. throughout the fiscal cliff discussions the president and the democrats who control washington repeatedly refused to take any meaningful steps to make washington li within its means. that position is irresponsible, and fails to acknowledge what every family in america already knows. when you have no money in your account, and your credit cards are maxed out, then the spending must stop. that's the current financial reality facing america aps

, look, the washington party rarely gets what's going on elsewhere. washington is disconnected from the rest of the country. they are smart, hard working people. it's one of the reasons president obama ran his campaign from chicago. you just don't get what goes on in the rest of the country when you are in washington. it's not surprising they want to do things it old fashioned way. to build a party, tough be everywhere. one of the reasons we got clobbered in legislature is because our party's have gotten weak. the dnc needs to help state parties and train them, as we did and they need them to make their own decisions. people from kansas know how to win in kansas. people from washington don't know how to win in kansas. >> i feel like one of my tasks as a college professor is to find every young person sitting in my classroom who may have an ounce of talent and saying have you thought of running for office. i tend to say to them, voting is like the brushing your teeth of democracy. running for office is really enga engaging. how do we get young people to run? how do we get that bench deep
